The Key to Helping Fellow Practitioners Is to Help Them Improve from the Standpoint of the Fa
(Clearwisdom.net) When fellow practitioners around me are experiencing interference, other practitioners come forward to help, following Master's guidance, “The next person's things are your things, and your things are his things.” (“Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. Fa Conference,” July 2002) We actively send forth righteous thoughts together for them. However, after doing this a few times and without seeing any change in their situation, we tend to lose confidence in our fellow practitioner. The practitioner being interfered with has been studying the Fa every day and we have been helping by sending forth righteous thoughts. So why doesn't his or her situation improve?
If our fellow practitioners are going through interference, then there must be some omission and their thoughts must not be entirely righteous. There must be some loophole in their thoughts for an extended period of time. In other words, they are being interfered with because their thoughts are no longer completely righteous. So it is key to pinpoint those “not so righteous” thoughts and have fellow practitioners correct them with kindness. Furthermore, one must deny human emotions, human notions, attachments, and all the old forces' arrangements, both in our words and in our actions. If one studies the Fa every day but does not realize what the problem is, then the problem is not going to get solved. Therefore, although it is important to send forth righteous thoughts to help clear away the interference, what is more important is to help them improve in the Fa. Once human thoughts are vanquished, divine thoughts will arise and become established. One will then become more and more steady in cultivation.
